Product Placement 1.3 Tackles Sustainability
The latest installment of the product-design discussions takes place in New York Thursday night.
New Yorkers, take note: frequent Metropolis contributor Julie Taraska and Design Within Reach PR maven (and occasional party-photo subject) Kimberly Oliver launched Product Placement last year as a way to foster meaningful discussions about product design. The latest installment takes place tomorrow night at Designtex‘s downtown showroom, where Harry Allen, Andrea Ruggiero, Karl Zahn, MIO, and BOA of Object Interiors will each spend five minutes talking about the designated theme: sustainability. The $5 admission fee includes cocktails and “various surprises.” Full details at www.thisisproductplacement.com.
